3:30 - Mark Adams Band
Mark Adams was raised among the vineyards and cattle ranches of Paso Robles, California, a bountiful but rugged coastal hill region where the culture is equal parts cowboy and surfer. He grew up listening to honky- tonk in pick-ups in the fields of his family ranch, as well as hardcore and punk among the surf spots of Cayucos, California (which is why picker Lefty Frizzell and The Dead Kennedys are cited among his earliest influences.) Old country and punk’s shared themes of staunch independence, fresh cultural insight, humor, unabashed and thoughtful self-exploration and the confidence to call BS when seen, have long informed Adams' artful and playful songwriting.
Adams has enjoyed widespread attention from various bands, most notably Rancho Deluxe, whose three album catalog continues to enjoy national airplay on stations such as Sirius XM Outlaw Country and an international fan base. Adams has performed and recorded with the likes of Jim Lauderdale, Jay Dee Maness (Beck, The Byrds), Don Heffington (Bob Dylan, Lucinda Williams), Gabe Witcher (Punch Brothers) and many more. When not performing or recording, Adams farms Rhône Varietal grapes and makes wine for his highly regarded Ledge Vineyards label.
5:00 - Zongo All-Stars
Zongo All-Stars played their first show right here at the Back Bay Inn back in 2007 and has grown a strong and loyal fan base. Zongo has headlined every Junefest & Bayfest at the Back Bay Inn, and continues to delight audiences with their super fun, high energy blend of original Afro-Caribbean music.
